Release 1.6 (April 2020)

Release 1.6 adds support for: * Audit Log Framework (ALF) technical preview * Repository Explorer (REX)

Below are the highlights:

  • There is a new framework:
  • The Audit Log Framework (ALF) provides interface definitions and classes to enable connectors to support natural language enabled diagnostics such as exception messages and audit log messages.

  • There is a new user interface module:

    • The Repository Explorer (Rex) can help you explore and visualize the metadata in a repository. It retrieves entities and relationships from the repository and displays them. A details panel also shows the properties and other information about an object. Each entity or relationship is added to a network diagram, which shows how they are connected.
  • The Swagger-based API documentation for the Egeria server chassis has been reorganized to align with our modules structure & to provide links into our other documentation which also will clarify if the module is released, in Tech Preview, or still in development. The docs can be found at https://<server>:<port>/swagger-ui.htm. Further enhancements will follow in future releases.

  • Many dependencies have been updated including:

    • Kafka client upgraded to 2.4.1
    • Spring updated to 5.2.4, spring boot to 2.2.5 & other spring components accordingly.

For a full list refer to the git commit logs.
